I am 13 and a half stone and want to know how far off my next target, of being a size 16, I am.

If you can bear to share, t (heaps!) ia!!!

Gryffindor Wed 06-Nov-13 23:01:11

I'm 5"7. 12 stone. 14/16 on hips/bum, 12 on top.

viperslast Wed 06-Nov-13 23:01:32

Doesn't this thread show how difficult weight is! I am a 10/12 at 10.5st a straight 10 at 10st so a full st heavier than some others on this thread at the same height and weight.

dontcallmehon Wed 06-Nov-13 23:02:17

9 stone, size 8~10

Noregrets78 Wed 06-Nov-13 23:02:30

oo snap I'm 5'6" and 13.5 stone too. I'm a 16 at this weight although god knows how much is in my boobs ;-)

Ah well, what the hell. I am 5ft, 6 and a half inches tall and weight about 15 stone wink. I lost a stone in September and promptly put it back on in October. I give up - I was obviously born to be fat. (Forget the biscuits, those profiteroles were lush!)

IamtheZombie Wed 06-Nov-13 23:03:38

Body shape / bone structure must have a lot to do with it because Zombie is only 8 stone and finds many 10s too small while 12s are loose.

GinAndIt Wed 06-Nov-13 23:03:44

I'm that height and a smidge under 11 stone, size 12-14. Would like to be 10 stone, ideally.

AthelstaneTheUnreadyFucker Wed 06-Nov-13 23:05:49

It's dodgy ground, going by weight. My SIL and I are both 5'6", we look about the same size, but I'm a size 8 at 8.5 stone, and she's a size 8 and 10.5 stone! She is firm all over I suppose, whilst I'm skinnier around the joints, but you'd have to look hard to tell the difference. We fit into the same clothes.

stopgap Wed 06-Nov-13 23:07:05

I'm 5'7 and was 8 stone 9 before this pregnancy. I'm now 28 weeks and a stone heavier. Was back to normal weight within six weeks of having DS1.

I'm a slight build, always have been, and judging by family members, probably always will be.

wigglybeezer Wed 06-Nov-13 23:07:21

I am the same height exactly and weigh 9 stone 10 ish.

CocacolaMum Wed 06-Nov-13 23:07:42

well since we are playing top trumps Justforlaughs.. My name is Coca and I am just shy of 18 stone.. I am not jolly.

DoTheStrand Wed 06-Nov-13 23:09:38

I am exactly 5 foot 6 and a half inches though naturally I claim to be 5 foot 7 smile

I weigh 9 stone 3 usually and I'm a size 8-10. At my heaviest I was 11 and a half stone and I think I was a 14 starting to need a size 16 at that point. This was about 14 years ago though so sizes may have changed.

Good luck OP, I'm sure you can do it!

I'm just under 5' 7" - size 10 bottom and 12 top. I usually weigh just under 11 stone (about 10.12 most days)

ShellingPeas Wed 06-Nov-13 23:10:12

9 stone. Size 10/12 on top, size 8/10 on bottom depending on shop. But I was a swimmer and have big shoulders and am big busted.

mameulah Wed 06-Nov-13 23:11:00

Noregrets I am inspired. If I am not being too nosey......what shop do you get a size 16? I am particularly interested as I am most definitely not flat chested.

cece Wed 06-Nov-13 23:11:04

5 foot 7 and 13 stone here. I wear size 14/16 clothes depending on store and whether it is on the top or lower half of my body.

PansOnFire Wed 06-Nov-13 23:12:54

I'm exactly the same height as you; 12st7 and size 16. I used to be 10st3lbs and was a 10/12. My boobs are massive ATM, they haven't gone down after pregnancy and my DS is 1. At 13st7lbs I was a size 16-18. Interesting thread!

LaVitaBellissima Wed 06-Nov-13 23:15:49

5ft 6 10st 8lbs I am a 10 on top and a 10/12 on the bottom.

Crazy all the different weights on here, my slimmest I've been is about 9 stone where I am a 6 on top and an 8 on the bottom confused

tinmug Wed 06-Nov-13 23:17:09

Most branches of Boots have electronic scales which are usually pretty accurate. It costs 50p to get your height and weight, or 70p to get your height, weight & body fat composition (I'm not sure how accurate the bod fat measurement is - probably not very).

Tilly333 Wed 06-Nov-13 23:17:21

I am a 'solid' 5ft 7 weigh 14.5 stone and can sometimes get into a 16! but mostly 18 ... I would love to get into a permanent 14/16 and am trying! Very interesting thread!

Kayakinggirl86 Wed 06-Nov-13 23:19:58

Ok this never makes sence to me. My height is 5.6 and a half. I currently weigh 13st and 7.5 pounds (just lost 20 pounds) my size 16 clothing is all far to big, size 14 trousers fit me nicely with the odd 12. Tops are all a 10 or 12!

How can you be the same weight/ height as me but so different size wise!

catgirl1976fucker Wed 06-Nov-13 23:21:40

11 stone 10

Size 14

cece Wed 06-Nov-13 23:24:44

Lycra

BlackeyedSusan England Wed 06-Nov-13 23:24:44

five foot 6 inches. size 16, some 14's. 69kg/10st 12-13lb

I have big wide hips. when I was 8 stone I still wore 12-14 jeans. (imagine a snake that has swallowed an egg)

LongTailedTit Wed 06-Nov-13 23:24:54

5'6-and-a-half" smile

I however do not own trustworthy scales.

I believed I weighed 10st (naked) for ages, then weighed myself at my mothers (clothed) and hers said 11st! I do not believe my jeans and tshirt weigh a stone... sad

I'm probably 10st 7-10lb. Size 12-14, bottom half a 14.
Small boned, so my sis who's a tall skinny big-boned size 10 weighs about the same as me, if not more.

However am now 14wks pregnant, so am already in size 16 (H&M) maternity jeans due to the beating my stomach muscles took with DS. Ah well.
